Both players might be with the team briefly, as Watkins is simply taking Starlin Castro's spot whil he is on bereavement leave. Rosscup is up with the team to replace Edwin Jackson (lat), but might go back down when the team needs another starter.
Doubront, who is working his way back from a calf injury, has yet to pitch in a game for the Cubs since being acquired. He has allowed six runs in 10 innings so far on his rehab assignment.
Jackson was chased in the third inning of his start Wednesday after allowing eight hits and seven runs, and it appears the injury is at least part of the reason. The team had discussed moving him to a bullpen role after Wednesday's outing, but that decision will have to wait until after this injury heals. At this point, there is no timetable for his return.
Jackson has struggled mightily this season even before the injury, with his ERA ballooning to 6.09 in 26 starts.
Bedrosian has a 1.30 ERA over 41 2/3 innings in three stops in the minors this season, and will make his major-league debut upon appearing in his first game with the Angels.
LeBlanc will be available out of the bullpen beginning Thursday, but the Orange County Register reports he is in line to start in Richards' place Monday against the Marlins. LeBlanc appeared in one game earlier this season for the Angels, allowing four runs over six innings of relief.
Qualls has not pitched since Tuesday, but does not think the injury will require a disabled list trip.
Pino will start the first game of the doubleheader, his first start since he was sent down last week. Pino's stay with the team will not last long, as he will be called up and sent down as the team's 26th man for the doubleheader.
Murphy began his exercises Thursday, though it sounds as if he is limited at this point. Murphy is expected to be out until at least mid-September due to a strained right oblique.
According to the Washington Post, Souza is expected to play at Hagerstown before moving to Class A Potomac for a few more games. It is not clear when he will be considered a candidate to return to the majors.
